about

Born in the Bahamas before relocating to the bustles of Hong Kong then London, DJ Yakuza's latest tape "Family" stems from a blend of world experiences. Dance rhythms from Latin American and Africa are intertwined with the inner city sounds of South London, where Yakuza and his crew Block Boys cut their teeth at. An apt blend of global club influences, ghetto tech, jungle to baile funk all run rampant across the 100 - 130 BPM productions. "Amore" features vocals from rising Brazilian MC's Alysson and MC 2D. Angolan House rapper Afro Pupo jumps on "Wena Waborra" in a carnival shuffle, while MC Don Juan's slang heavy track "Amar Amei" teleports São Paulo's street parties to the early dance hour's of London's deepest haunts.

"The whole idea of the tape was to focus on dance inspiration from Latin America but also London - everything that’s inspired me through out the years: from jungle to grime to house music" - DJ Yakuza
